    Course information

    This virtual workshop series convened seasoned foresters from industry and academia to share boots on the ground experience. Regulators, legislators, and public interest groups shared new ideas for maintaining healthy productive forest, while also maintaining great relationships with neighbors and the public. While this emphasizes herbicide best practices specific to Oregon, there is applicable information for herbicide use across the NW and beyond. Parallels can be identified, insights drawn, and lessons learned can inform and improve forest herbicide practices.

    These interactive presentations were originally captured in 2016. Original programming was supported by Oregon Forest Resources Institute, Oregonians for Food & Shelter, Western Forestry and Conservation Association, and Emerging Tech Accelerator.

    This virtual workshop series breaks down herbicide best practices into 3 key phases: assessing why we spray, pre-operations planning, and executing herbicide application. Additionally, you will learn about best practices to help minimize adverse effects to neighbors.

    Section 1: Why We Spray - This section will discuss why we spray, examine a variety of situational scenarios and application techniques, which plants to control, and ground water issues to consider.

                   Four (4) presentations ranging from 24 - 44 minutes each

    Section 2: Pre-operations Planning - This section will cover working with spray contractors including training, pre-flight checklists, shared responsibilities, and compliance.

                   Two (2) presentations ranging from 50 - 64 minutes each

    Section 3: Managing the Day of the Event - This section reviews final pre-operation plans, detailed spray day project plans, post-operations protocols, and crisis management and regulatory concerns.

                    Three (3) presentations ranging from 29 - 50 minutes each

    Section 4: Being a Good Neighbor - This section examines what protocols should be in place to minimize adverse effects to those neighboring your spray site.

                    Four (4) presentations ranging from 17 - 40 minutes each

    Webinar information

    Current drone technologies advance the capability to collect, process, and interpret on-demand, high-resolution remotely-sensed data that can transform DoD land-management by providing the latest information for optimizing decision-making. However, the DoD regulatory requirements for non-military drone use on installations are both demanding and challenging to navigate. This discussion will outline the potential applications of drones and related technologies within natural resource management, provide clarifications on regulatory requirements and recommendations for pursuing non-military drone use on DoD-managed lands, and showcase examples of successful drone projects implemented on DoD lands. This session will also allow time for participant Q&A with Dr. Cohen and other subject matter experts on DoD land management and drone applications.

    Anne Jewell (Moderator)

    Chair

    DoD Forestry Working Group

    Anne graduated from the University of Kentucky with a BS in Forestry and then worked nearly 20 years conducting forest management at Army installations. She then went on to initiate a strategic plan for wildland fire management for the Army’s Installation Management Command before going to work at Army Headquarters in 2019 as their first Wildland Fire Program Specialist. She is now working in a new position within the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Environmental Planning and Conservation Program as the Resilient Lands and Wildland Fire Program Manager covering a broad spectrum of program, policy, and partnership initiatives and opportunities for wildland fire and natural resources management occurring on DoD lands. Within SAF, Anne is the District 8 Representative to the SAF Board of Directors, serves on the Governance Committee, and previously has served as the Chair of the Appalachian SAF, Virginia SAF state division, and Rappahannock local chapter. She's excited that this SAF working group will be a venue to share information, innovation, and generate professional networking opportunities for those managing natural resources on DoD lands and those interested in how the DoD works towards environmental security as a facet of its national security mission.
